Yu is an illustrator who loves making your day a little bit more fun and colorful. She grew up in a small town in Japan with big passion for art and travel in her heart. Her love of illustration, design, and storytelling has led her to graduate with BFA in Digital Media from Otis College of Art and Design.
Before starting her illustration career, she worked as a motion graphics designer for commercials and TV networks for 10 years. She now enjoys mixing digital skills into her illustration. Inspiration is everywhere for her from observing tiny details of every day life to vibrant sceneries during her travels.
She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles with her husband, her son, and a sassy tuxedo cat. When she’s not drawing, she can be found playing with her son, listening to live music, reading, and traveling faraway places with her family and friends.
